Throwing Your Perfect Galentine’s Day Brunch! Valentine’s Day is known as the day of love.

What (Most) Moms Really Want For Christmas

Friday, December 23, 2016 By Jessica Tomes
the real gifts that moms want for christmas, baby chick

Ask a mom what she wants for Christmas. I dare you. She will probably respond with something altruistic like, “I want nothing more than my family’s health and happiness.” Or “I really don’t need anything. I have plenty. Maybe peace on Earth, or a cure to childhood cancer?” Because we’re moms, and this is what we do. We deflect. We constantly worry about taking too much time for ourselves, and don’t even ask us to spend money on something silly like a day at the spa. Nope, not gonna happen. It’s like when you become a mom, you start to…

Say No to Stress this Holiday Season

no stress this holiday season, baby chick. stress, peaceful christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, or so the song says, but it’s also one of the busiest. The holiday season is when we typically overcommit ourselves with parties, family outings, and shopping. Add in the other everyday activities that still carry on and you’ve got yourself an overloaded timetable. When time gets tight, and something has to get dropped from the schedule, many of us drop the self care routines and practices that we’ve cultivated all the rest of the year. But they don’t have to! Watch what you eat and drink. Whether it’s the spread at…

I am a big fan of lactation cookies. Okay let’s be honest, I am a HUGE fan of ALL cookies. And now that we are approaching the holidays, I wanted to give my usual lactation cookie recipe a fun, holiday twist this year. Because when I think about Christmas cookies, I dream about “kitchen sink cookies.” (A delicious cookie with a little bit of everything!) Check out my holiday adaptation below. I’m thinking I won’t be making the same old, tired lactation cookies ever again… Ingredients: 2 cups of butter 1-1/4 cups of brown sugar 1 egg 1 tablespoon of vanilla…

Shop “Green Friday” with Baby Chick!

Friday, November 25, 2016 By Jessica Tomes

Hello, Mommy Chicks! We hope you all had a truly fabulous Thanksgiving — eating entirely too much delicious food (the pie and wine is my personal favorite), and snuggling with your precious families in front of the television! Can you BELIEVE that the holiday shopping season is now officially upon us? We most certainly cannot! Wasn’t August like last week? Geez. I guess time flies when we’re having fun (or too insanely busy to even notice)!
